Leslie Rose

Leslie Rose is in her third year at Pitt, majoring in the History of Art and Architecture with a minor in Museum Studies. She intends on graduating spring of next year. Leslie is deeply interested in Modern and Contemporary art well as diversity and representation in the art world. After she graduates, she hopes to continue her studies then one day work as a curator in a museum. Her goal is to improve the visibility of women and minorities in museums so that a variety of stories and experiences are told.

As the archival scholar for the Frick Fine Arts Library, Leslie is currently researching the library’s amazing collection of artists’ books. An artist book is a work of art that often mimics the form a book. With her research, she is making the collection more accessible to faculty and students by creating searchable metadata. The information Leslie collects also allows her to make recommendations on artists' books the library should acquire to ensure that the collection is representative and diverse.
